Mechanical engineering, one of the most general branches of engineering, requires broad knowledge in many fields: mechanics, thermal science, design, machinery, instrumentation, and more. The breadth and flexibility of a mechanical engineer’s education provide a wide choice of careers and allow movement into a variety of engineering areas.
Mechanical engineers control the production, transmission, and use of power. They design and develop machines that produce and/or use power. Many mechanical engineers are employed in manufacturing. The technical versatility and importance of mechanical engineers are demonstrated by the diversity of industries that employ them.
